There are plenty of occasions to give gifts throughout the year. But what should you do if you have completely no idea what to get a person passionate about photography? Just… visit the Colorland’s blog and be inspired! :) Be sure to check our ideas on photo gadgets for photographers – both for amateur and professional ones!
1. Portable tripod – GorillaPod
The portable tripod GorillaPod is considered to be one of the most versatile gadgets in the world :) Unlike traditional ones, GorillaPod doesn’t require a plane surface to be placed on as it can be put in a stable position in practically every situation thanks to its flexible legs. You can pin it everywhere you want – from a regular fence to a tree branch! ;)
2. Handmade camera straps

A strong camera strap is the key! However, who said that the camera strap has to be black and boring? Nothing like that! In the times of DIY trends, it's worth choosing handmade straps that will express a photographer’s style!

Gloves are useful especially during long outdoor photo sessions in autumn or winter and these particular gloves we want to mention are super practical! You can choose fingerless gloves or think about something even more modern – touchscreen gloves! The most important thing for photographers is to protect their fingers against the cold so they can spend hours doing what they love.

Contrary to appearances, this time we won’t tell you about a personalized photo product ;) Similar to your camera strap - a camera bag and accessories also don’t have to be boring! It’s worth opting for a fancy bag that will not only be both a practical and trendy gift but also great camouflage for your precious photography equipment. And what about stamping a photographer's name on it?
